Watch Description

The Boston 377 is the 377th one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Boston" line of the American Artisan Series. This watch contains the original movement (timepiece), dial (face), and hands from a vintage (1880’s – 1950’s) pocket watch. The American Artisan Series is a line of fully American Made wristwatches powered by restored, U.S. made pocket watch movements.

What makes the Boston 377 Unique: Today we are happy to present the Boston 377, an amazing timepiece originally manufactured by the Waltham Watch Company in Waltham, Massachusetts. We love the combination of this dark gunmetal case with the bold numerals and overly large Waltham logo. Blued steel full moon hands bring a touch of color along with this gold plated crown and natural strap. The simplicity and classic feel of this watch make it really stand out in a stunning manner. As we peek inside the back of this movement we are mesmerized by the unique shape of the build plate and intricate demaskeened pattern all throughout. Beneath all the wonderful patterns on the nickel plate are gold plated gears to bring some visual balance and wow factor, as well as 17 screw-set and friction-set jewels. This watch was originally produced in 1919, still moving strong all these years later. This was a year when World War I was finally coming to an end and troops were returning home to America. It was also the year that the Bentley Motor Company was originally founded in North London.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Waltham Watch Company. We call this model "The Boston" because of the company's proximity to the city.

Also known as American Watch Company and American Waltham Watch Company, Waltham was one of the leaders in attempting an entirely new concept, machines making machines. Prior to this, a watchmaker would hand-make each part of a movement one-at-a-time. Operating from 1851-1957, Waltham called its product the "Scientific Watch." Waltham's innovative, precise machining techniques made parts interchangeable, and their early version of the assembly line made high-quality watches efficient to produce. Legend has it that Henry Ford drew inspiration for his assembly line production from a visit to Waltham's factory. Located on the bank of the Charles River in "Watch City" (Waltham), Massachusetts, the factory has since been converted to apartment lofts.
